Why I chose IU Psychiatry Residency: There are multiple reasons why I wanted to be here at IU. To start, I couples matched with my wife, who is now in her last year of Med-Peds residency. The psychiatry program here was very supportive toward applicants who are couples matching, which was great. The location of IU was also highly important. Indianapolis has all the perks of a big city (food, night life, entertainment, airport, etc) but without the high cost of living and terrible traffic. Perhaps most importantly, the patient referral radius encircles the entire state, or almost. By casting such a wide net, I felt like it would improve my chances of encountering more rare disorders and atypical presentations, which was important to me in my training.
